Hard to see this one coming. We’re sure it’s just a small minority acting like complete assholes.

Because even when you get your way, you still need to be a jerk. Differing opinions will not be tolerated by the tolerance crowd. Dissent must be mocked and ridiculed. Why, these people are like Democrat segregationists of days gone by.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo again acted like a LGBT activist on Monday’s New Day, as he interviewed Peter Sprigg from the socially conservative Family Research Council. Cuomo raised the specter of Jim Crow when he claimed that a proposed First Amendment Defense Act in Congress “does smack familiar to what happened in the wake of the miscegenation laws and the civil rights laws, where…some cited the Bible; some stated religion – and said, it’s against my beliefs. I shouldn’t have to participate.”
The anchor used some of the social left’s other talking points on LGBT issues – that conservatives were trying to “project your religious beliefs onto the behavior of others. We know that we can’t do that in a pluralistic society. This just seems like a little bit sour grapes, and a little bit of trying to defy…the supreme law of the land.” He also asserted that religious insitutions worried about their tax-exempt status in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Friday decision on same-sex “marriage” was, “as some would access…a scare tactic.”
Cuomo repeatedly emphasized at the beginning of the segment that there was no need for the First Amendment Defense Act. He first wondered if the bill was “a way to legalize discrimination against same-sex couples,” and asked Sprigg, “Why is this necessary?” The Family Research Council fellow pointed out that many “advocates of same-sex marriage…are hostile to the free exercise of religion by those who believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.” He continued that the proposed law would “make sure that the government does not discriminate in any government action against private entities because they hold to the belief that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and act on that belief.”
It’s almost as if the left is perpetually angry:
Greatest week ever for the left. Still unhappy.

Fact. You know, it’s as if winning in the Supreme Court has made them even angrier. Weird, huh? You will be forced to comply:
They will allow you no escape. http://t.co/i6SQmhXjCF
